We are doing some maintenance. We will be back soon!

In the meantime feel free to contact us or book one of our amazing rooms.



Buckler’s Africa lodge offers luxury self-catering accommodation on the banks of the Crocodile River, overlooking the Kruger National Park. The spectacular lawns create a feeling of space and tranquillity before one enters the main building.

Each unit has stunning high sealings and beautiful finishes. The units have its own kitchenette and spacious bathroom. Kruger National Park, being less than a stone’s throw away offers nighttime acoustics of Lion, Hippo and Hyaena for that authentic African bush experience.

The sights and sounds of Africa greet you every morning from the comfort of your air-conditioned bedroom. Breakfast can be organised with us should you wish to sit and enjoy the view without worrying about food.

Relax at the pool with a pair of binoculars and watch as the animals come to drink at the river below, or drive into Kruger 6km away to go looking for animals. The Beach and spectacular scenery make wonderful day trips with the Mozambique coast and mountains of Swaziland each being a little more than an hour’s drive away.

      What a wonderful place for a bit of rest before entering the Kruger National Park. Buckers is located adjacent to the park sharing the crocodile river as a border. The rooms are beautifully done. It's self catering but offers breakfast. It's not far from Komatipoort...More

      Great location, super friendly and helpful staff. Not 100% clean, kitchen utensils could be more as self catering. Also pool dirty on arrival and interior that is beyond lifecycle. Needs renovating as it’s a hidden gem.
